"Most of us here today are not leaders and never will be. Wc are
if you like, in the second class." So said the guest speaker, His Excel-
lency J. S. Reid, at the Closing Day Ceremony, a full report of which is
to be found in this issue of the Ashburian. He cited Somerset Maughan's
contention, made to answer the critics, that fulfillment can be found in
the "front row of second raters." He might well have used the example
of an indigenous product, Ottawa's poet of the Post-Confederation era,
Archibald Lampman, who reticently yet accurately assessed his own verse
as superior poetry of a minor order. At all events, an antidote to the
popular conception of the independent school's exclusive preoccupation
with the qualities of leadership is always welcome. Indeed the whole
question of what kind of education a particular school desires is especially
relevant in a year when Ashbury launches an appeal for funds, the
details of which are also within these pages. The role of the independent
school ought to be closely scrutinized when society is taking an increas-
ing interest in education and when nations talk of education as an invest-
ment. Certainly there ought to be a greater awareness of the capability
of this kind of school by parents, students and staff alike.

The Chapel continues to be a source of inspiration and strength to
the school. A large number of people work loyally together so that we
can worship Ciod in the beauty^ of holiness. It is not possible to mention
them all by name, and none of them would want to be thanked, but we
should mention the continued support and interest of the Headmaster.
The choir had a difficult year. Last September we found that most
of the best voices had changed and we had to start from scratch again.
Many thanks to Mr. Godfrey Hewitt for doing so well during the course
of the year.

It has become a custom for the young ladies from Elmwood to come
to the Ashbury Chapel services quite frequently. This is a very happy
custom, for all concerned. We hope it will be a permanent arrangement.
The Headmistress, Mrs. Blyth, has been most co-operative. With her
permission, the Elmwood Choir assisted with the singing on Sunday
Jan. 26 and they sang an anthem "The Lord is my Shepherd". Their
attractive green robes were a pleasing contrast to the red cassocks of the
Ashburv^ choir. The lesson was read by the head boarder Aliss Jeanette
MacDonald. We hope this will become a yearly event.
On Sunday .Mar. 15 Mr. WilHam Navan, the blind organist and
Lay Reader at St. Margaret's Eastview, brought his junior choir to the
chapel. They sang an anthem entitled "Souls of Men" and joined with
the Ashbury choir for the rest of the service, with Mr. Navan at the
organ. It was an added touch to the beauty, dignity and reverence of

The Candle Light Service, properly called the Service of The Nine
Lessons, took place on December 15th at 8.00 p.m. for parents and
visitors and again for the boys on Tuesday at 4.00 p.m. We were
pleased to welcome the Junior Choir from St. Bartholomew's Church
among our guests. As our choir was not quite strong enough to carry it
alone. Air. Godfrey Hewitt, the .Master of the Choir brought several
boys from the Cathedral Choir to help.
The Chapel now has a Sacristan. This year Cann I took on the
service of looking after the Sanctuary, changing the hangings, preparing

We still continue to support two Zulu boys at St. Christopher's

anything that is required for the chapel. This year, as usual, they have

THE JUNIOR CHAPEL
The juniors had their daily service in the Chapel separately from the
seniors. Re\^ Mr, x\tr\vell was assisted by the monitors and members
of the staff who read the lessons. Mr. Polk read the lessons at the begin-
ning and end of each term. The juniors who read were Armitage,
Ennis-Smith, Farrugia, Michaelson, Neilson, Moulds, Sharp, Xelms,
Gow, Harsh, Tyas. The masters who read were Messrs. Hilliary, Mor-
gan, Sinclair, also Miss Black. Tvas was the very capable Chapel

Mr. L. I. H. Spencer conducted the daily religious exercises for the
Roman Catholic boys. We are sorry that he will not be with us again
next year but we \\'ish him every happiness in his new position.

HERBERT S. DALTON
After a nine year stretch as a member of the Mathematics Depart-

at Digby, Nova Scotia.
Mr. Dalton joined the Ashbur>^ Staff in 1955 after a tour of duty at
King's College School and Lakefi'eld. He was a quiet (except when
angry) dependable Schoolmaster and served Ashbury well and faithfully
In addition to his class work he operated the Stationery Room and
coached Soccer and Cricket.
All of us hope that Herbie's knowledge of Maths will be useful as
he manages the Tea Cup Inn finances and that the future will bring him

At eleven o'clock on the morning of October the 8th a cavalcade of
cars drove up to the front of the school. In the lead were two members
of the R.C.M.P. on motor bikes. \\^hen the first car stopped at the
front door out stepped a slight, bearded figure, dressed in military uni-
fomi and \\earing a splendid array of ribbons. This was the Emperor

THE ASH B U Rl AN
Adam George Steven Podhradsky died in December after a long
illness. He had been at Ashbury since Junior School days and was a
School Prefect during the last year. His cheerful face and sparkling
sense of humour had brightened the sombre school corridors for much
of this time. Adam was held in the highest regard and respect by all
who knew him. During last year's Closing Ceremonies he was presented
with the Headmaster's Cup for character. Spontaneous applause broke
the noon-day heat that day for a very popular choice. His death
is a sad loss for his contemporaries and the school.
To A4rs. Podhradsky the School extends heartfelt sympathies.
Captain of the School
This year the College Cadet Corps was rcxicwed by Major-General
J. P. K. Bernatchcz, C.B.i:., D.S.O., CD., \'ice-Chicf of the General

T H E ASH B U RI AN 23
RIFLES AT MIDNIGMT
The army came at midnight They took our ancient bashers
To take our guns awav Ammo stores and F.N.s
They left us naught but ancient swords The wireless and the bayonets
To pass the time of day, And even good old Brens.
H7.\rf really happened
Because small arms and ammunition had been stolen from certain
areas in Quebec, the Government decided to remove into safekeeping all
weapons held in armouries or by small units in the so called "sensitive"
area — i.e. centres within easy reach of Quebec (or other) would-be
terrorists. As Ashburv^ was on the list of units in the danger zone the
army u^as instructed to pick up its weapons. The Chief Instructor of
the Ashbury Corps was advised that the removal would take place at
9.45 p.m. (2145 hours) on February 21st. Unfortunately the vehicle
broke down, and it was not until after midnight that the detachment
arrived. The mere presence of armed men, in vehicles, at that hour,
carrying rifles created something of a stir and the School authorities were
not at all pleased. Unfortunately- an eager young reporter picked up the
scent and played games with the facts. The reportorial and political
consequences were both weird and amusing.
Honi' it was reported
Not only did this incident become hot new^s, but it got T.V. cover-
age and was also debated on the floor of the House. Newspapers across
Canada carried the story, inevitably using the incident for a rousing game
of political football. In many papers reference was made to Ashbur)%
the "Eton" of Canada, with its "now world famous Cadet Corps".
Hansard carried the full text of the debate in the House on Tuesday
February 25th 1964 and again on February 26th. It makes delightful
So wide was the newspaper coverage that a Clipping Service pro-
duced articles from N.S. to B.C., the known count being over 50.
Finally Time carried an article in its .March 6th edition with a photograph
of a recent Ashbury Corps on parade.
Macleans issue of April 4th concluded the affair, using as did one
or two other papers, a Cartoon to illustrate the removal of the \\eapons.
It can certainly be said that the publicity introduced Ashbury to
readers right across Canada — with noticeable results. This years en-
quiries about the School have been greater than ever and from a much
more widespread area.
The students took the business in their stride and went out to put on
one of the best Cadet Inspections in many years.
The 1963 football season was an extremely satisfactory one. The
first team entered a city football league for the first time and, after a slow
beginning, did very well. The fine effort of this team was remarked
upon by the coach of the Champion Rideau team when he accepted the
There were many individual highlights to the season, some of which
were: Lash catching the fastest Stanstead backfielder from behind;
Sinclair and Stansbury doing the heavy work against Hillcrest; Reid's
breakaway runs against Northwood and Stanstead; Rawley's running
against Ottawa U. High School and Westmount; Smallian and Homer
combining to defeat Bishops; Berry running down the kicker and getting
the ball against Rideau Juniors; Cotton blocking a kick against Eastview;
Hunt's running against Rideau Intermediates and the Old Boys; Wenn-
berg breaking away against Westmount; Keffer's excellent running and
defensive play against everyone; Garton kicking extra points.
Interesting strategic development were the "Wennberg Bounce",
the "Reid Fumble", and the "Berry kick-pass", all called very cleverly
Every game was a fine team effort but those that stand out were:
the entire team against Westmount and Stanstead, but the offence in
particular; the defence against F^astview and Hillcrest. The most excit-
ing game was that against Bishops, which was won on the last play with
a new pass put in that week. The most important game for the team
was the victory over Hillcrest. This game indicated the spirit of the
squad; Hillcrest had beaten Rideau and were undefeated; our defence
had been completely changed after a 37-0 loss to Rideau. Although the
score was low in play Ashbury had the edge the whole game. The most
satisfactory part of the year for the coach was the co-operation and
willingness on the part of the players. Many were playing new posi-
tions and all were playing a new system. In spite of this there were very
few penalties and there was an excellent distribution of scoring and ball-
As a conclusion to these general remarks the players for next year
should be reminded of the formula that was included in last year's letter
to all prospective football players:
Conditioning + Determination + Co-operation = Success

SECOND FOOTBALL TEAM
Our record of two wins and five losses is not impressive. Neverthe-
less the players will agree that the season was an exciting and valuable
one. A pleasing factor was the high competitive spirit which was main-
tained. Perhaps the highlight was our home and home series with
Selwyn House. We lost the first game 22-24 on our grounds and came
back with a 7-2 win when we played them in Montreal.
Dawson as Captain and Benskin as Vice-Captain contributed much,
and both boys have great potential for next year's first squad.
We thank Mr. Hillary for his fine coaching. We were weary boys
by the end of the practice sessions, but it was good for us.

FIRST SOCCER TEAM
For the second year in the row the first team had seven players
returning, these so-called "veterans" formed the nucleus of the team.
The players returning were Danny .Mc(jaughe\', Dave Alulaner, Andy
Zaporski, Harvey Schwartzman, Ed Riddell, Brian Johnston and Barry
Cooper, ^^'ith these players returning and havincj some very crood new
material Mr. "Smiles" Anderson with extra coaching help from Mr.
Hancock, found it easy to form an effective team. After getting off to a
good start in the League and progressing to the finals, over-confidence
and bad conditions led to our ehmination. Following is a short analysis
of each game (not too prejudiced I hope).
1. Our season started with the annual game against O.V.C.C. The
team having only a week and a half of training was not really up for

the game and so, it was reinforced with Messrs. Anderson and Han-
cock and last year's captain Rusty Davidson. This was a hard
fought game, with Ashbury coming from behind twice to even the
score and having a very debatable goal disallowed. However, as
usual experience triumphed over youth, the final score was 3-2.
Hancock and Riddell talHed for Ashbury.
2. The second game of the year was a league game against Ridgemont
High School. The team having played Ridgemont before knew it
would have to be in its top form to beat this relatively inexperienced
but full-of-drive team. The first half of the game was indecisive
with the action being split evenly, however right from the face off
in the second half Ridgemont's offence surged through our defence
and scored. There was no further scoring until half way in the
period when two quick goals, one by Johnston, the other by Cooper
salted the game away for Ashbury.
3. The team's next game was another league game, this time against
Hillcrest. This was really a pushover for Ashbury, and conditions
kept the score from being a lot higher. ]\lcGaughey collected
Ashbury's two goals.
4. We played an exhibition game against Eastview on Ashbury ground
2 days after our last game. The outcome of the game was very
surprising to our coach Mr. Anderson who had picked us to lose.
Again Ashbury dominated the play for most of the game. Mc-
Gaughey scored all four of our goals, two in each half.
5. We travelled next to Kemptville for a game against the Kcmptville
Agricultural School. Last year we had soundly defeated this team
and the knowledge of this plus the overconfidence bred by our good
start this year almost led to our downfall. Kemptville had im-
proved immensely since last year and held us to a 3-2 victory which
we had to fight like grim death to hold on to. McGaughey again
scored all three goals.
6. After our mediocre showing against Kemptville, Mr. Anderson had
drilled us a bit harder than usual for our league game against Rideau.
We had suffered a humiliating defeat to Rideau last year and the
members of last year's team now had a chance to revenge themselves.
They took the chance, defeating Rideau 6-0. After scoring five goals
in the first half Mr. Anderson gave some younger boys a chance to
play for the second half. The goal scorers were McGaughey with
four, Riddell and Birou with each singletons.
7. Now came the big game of the year, the game against Eastview
which would decide who came first in our section of Ottawa. They
had the advantage of playing on their own ground backed by their
supporters and \vc had the advantage of already beating them 4-0.
The game was fast and furious and was tied at 1-1 in the first period,
with a final score of 2 to 1 in favour of Eastview. Ashbury
advanced to the semi-finals against Nepean, the first team in the
8. Before playing Nepean we met Stanstead on the Westhill I ligh
School Soccer field. The pace of this game was slower than most
of our games with the only goal being scored in the first few minutes
of the 2[ame by Cooper on a free kick.
Now came the game the team had been waiting on pins and needles
for, the semi-finals against Nepean. This game was played at Brewer's
Park under almost perfect conditions. The pace of the game was fast
and furious and the only goal scored, by Nepean, came after the Ashbury
team had been rearranged due to an injury to the center half. The out-
come of the game came as a great disappointment both to the team and
coach. Even though we lost the game it filled us with determination to
do well in our last few games.
W'e then played the annual double-header against Northwood
School from Lake Placid, New York. Northwood always puts up a
good fight and this year was certainly no exception. In the first game
of the double header Ashbury managed to defeat the Lake Placid team
3-0. Two goals were scored in the first half one each by AIcGaughey and
Riddell. McGaughey scored again to round out the scoring.
xAfter resting our aches and pains for a night, we again took the field
ag^ainst Northwood. It looked as if this game was going to end in a
scoreless tie, however, with just five minutes remaining AIcGaughey
recovered the ball just over half way, dribbled through the whole North-
wood defence and put the ball and the goalie in the net. This was the
first time since Ashbury and Northwood have played that Ashbury has
swept a doubleheader and the team was understandably proud of itself.
To take some of our self assurance away iMr. Anderson arranged a
game against Carleton University. Ashbury won the toss and took the
end with the wind and field advantage. This proved to be our \\'aterloo
as Carleton scored three goals against us when we had the advantages,
yet in the second half when they had the advantages they could not
score, unfortunately neither could we. The final score was 3-0 for
Then came the game against Bishops, this game was played at
Bishops in detestable conditions, as it either rained or snowed all the way
through the game. For the first half the play was mostly for us and the
score after the first half was 1-1. The play in the second half was com-
pletely dominated by Ashbury as the team scored five unanswered goals.
The goal scorers were AIcGaughey with 3, Johnston, Riddell and Birou
Now came the (friendly?) game against the masters. Even though
the masters had outside help, their rheumatism and arthritis brought
about by old age kept the game from being close. AIcGaughey and
Riddell scored for Ashbur>' and Mr. Batts managed somehow to put the
ball in the net for the masters.
In the last game of the season against the Old Boys, the team was
determined to put up a good fight. This game was a good game as far
as we were concerned as we defeated the old boys to the tune of 5-2, as
well as having three goals called back. The goal scorers were AIc-
Gaughey with 2, Johnston, Birou and Riddell with singletons.
The season was capped off with the Sports' Dinner at which the
following awards were given. Alost A'^aluable Player went to Daniel
AIcGaughey for his outstanding play during the year, Alost Improved
player to Brian Johnston, Colours were reawarded to AIcGaughey and
Cooper, and new colours were awarded to Alulaner, Riddell, Johnston

George Keffer— George, a real husrler improved greatly this year and
was always a threat when on the ice. The next team that George
plays for will benefit greatly from his aggressive play.
Rick Wennberg— "Berg" when not knocking opposing players down
(and picking himself oif the ice) played a very aggressive type of
Graham Gartox— "Toe" when on the ice threw his weight around well.
Best of luck in varsity hockey.
Tom Macdonald— Tom, as a member of the "Kid" line had an excellent
game against Hillfield. Although not having very much ice time
throughout the season he should be a mainstay of next year's team.
Bruce Berry— Bruce ("Elbows") had a very good season this year. His
play-making ability and stylish skating should make him the back-
bone of next year's team.
Rick South am— Rick took over as first string goalie and turned in many
great performances during the year.
Bob Scheel— Bob improved immensely from the first of the year.
Should be a great assistance to next year's team.
Iax Parker— lan's skating and shooting, although not the best on the
team, showed great improvement throughout the year. Great po-
tential for next year.
Sandy Sinclair- Sandy played his best game against Stanstead although
the team did not produce enough goals to win. Sandy was always
eager and willing.
Don AIcQuaig— Don surprised everyone with his ability on Defence.
His "heads up" style of play obtained many spectacular goals for
Boh Chantler— Bob played excellently throughout the season. Al-
though it was his first year on defence he became ver\' much
respected because of his hard body checks.
Dave Gambee— "Sass" once again showed his prowess at stickhandlin^,
shooting and skating. He Mas the backbone of the defence this
and next year should be the best in the league.
Leadingham - Fankhursi— iMany thanks to the managers this vcar for
doing an excellent job.
The team extends its thanks to .Mr. Hillary for all the rime and effort
he put into coaching us this year.

We next travelled to the Eastern Townships for the Tri-School Meet
against B.C.S. and Stanstead. We won comfortably with B.C.S. coming
second and Stanstead third. In this meet O'Brien was awarded the Price
Trophy, given to the best skier of the day.
The Cochand Trophy is held by the best ski team of Ashbury,
B.C.S. and L.C.C. This trophy was in the possession of L.C.C. who w^re
unable to be present at the Tri-School Meet. Arrangements were there-
fore made for a Meet to be held at Sedbergh with Ashbury, L.C.C. and
Sedbergh competing. We were again the victors, but by the narrowest
of margins over L.C.C, thereby gaining the Cochand Trophy. Our w^in
was due largely to a team effort in the Slalom (we placed four men in the
first six), and to Grant's fine win in the Cross Country.
Finally in the Dalton Wood Meet at Camp Fortune we were placed
4th out of the 14 competing high schools. As one of our better skiers
was unable to take part, this was a good showing.
Curling was played by a nucleus of boys in the Winter term. This
was a new departure and had a small but enthusiatic following under the
leadership of S. Cartman.
Four rinks were drawn up and their teams curled every Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday at the Curlodrome in Lansdowne Park.
Although time was limited to an hour's play, usually the boys managed
to take in five or six ends of play.

THE ASH B U RIAN
The first XI had a poor season as far as the results are concerned.
No game was won, but as usual the opposition were mostly experienced
adult players. In the school games with Bishop's College School the
batting proved to be fragile, but at times both the bowling and fielding
were of a respectable standard. The School's attack improved as the
season progressed, and it was a great pity that the batting did not advance
commensurately. Cricket is primarily a batsman's game and a side must
score enough runs for the attack to have a chance of getting the opposi-
tion out for a lower total. This truism was especially evident in the
game at home against B.C.S.
Most of the side will be back in school next season, and if this year's
experience matures the School will do much better next Spring.
Colours were re-awarded to G. Samples and R. Southam (Wicket-
keeper), and awarded to McQuaig, \A^ennberg and Taschereau.

CHARACTERS OF THE FIRST XI
Cooper, B. (capt.): He had a poor season with the bat and this under-
mined his confidence. He had a difficult task in the field with the
limited resources of the first attack.
Roberts, C. P. (vice-captain): His cricket was rather disappointing
throughout the term, but he was administratively efficient.
SouTHAM, R.: Potentially he has the makings of a sound left-hand open-
ing bat but at the moment lacks the concentration. An indifferent
Samples G.: He has been the most consistent wicket-taker in the side.
His left-arm spin is unusual in that the "Chinaman" appears to be his
stock ball. His inaccurate spells are costly.
Wennberg, R.: His attacking qualities were needed in the team in which
not enough batsmen hit the ball hard. As the season advanced his
increased watchfulness made him the most successful batsman.
Taschereau, M.: A left-arm seamer who improved rapidly with confi-
dence. He has the ability to move the ball through the air consis-
tently, and is very conscious about length.
Collyer, C: His right-arm medium-pace deliveries caused quite some
discomfort to the opposition; latterly however he became inaccurate
and too easily dispirited. A comfortable No. 1 1 in the batting
McQuAiG, D.: His bowling improved with persistence. For a medium-
pace bowler too many deliveries went innocuously wide down the
leg side. Sheer determination brought him many wickets. A good
Benskin, G.: An unorthodox left-hand batsman, his record was poorer
than necessary. He must learn to use his feet to get to the pitch
of the ball. A useful fielder.
DoDDS:, J.: Another left-hander who delights to hit the ball hard. At
the moment he lacks many fundamentals, but has time on his side.
His cheerful disposition and accurate throwing were useful con-
tributions in the field.
Spry: A safe fielder whose batting flattered only to deceive.

Athletics continues to suffer from the demands of examinations on
the boys' time. This term, however, with the aid of kind weather the
Track team coached by Mr. Hillary was very busy and attended several
outside meets. A number of creditable performances were recorded by
individuals. The Field competitors under the guidance of Mr. Black
also produced good individual results.
As usual the School Sports were rushed into the last few days of

This year's ceremony, the seventy-third in the history of the School,
took place in warm sunshine on Saturday, 6th June. The usual Leaving
Service for the graduating students in the Chapel was conducted by the
School Chaplains at 9.30 a.m., after which the whole School assembled
in the Quadrangle for the Prize Giving.
The Chairman of the Board of Governors, Commodore \\\ G. Ross,
R.C.N., in his opening remarks paid tribute to the School Staff, dwelt
briefly on the future of Cadet Training at Ashbury, and finally, and most
sis^nificantly, spoke of the increase in fees. This, he said coupled with
the appeal for a $650,000 development programme which will provide
for construction of a separate Junior School building with residence
accommodation for forty and classroom space for one hundred. Under
this scheme there will be a new gymnasium-auditorium, improved locker,
games and hobby rooms. The Chairman said that D. Cargill Southam
was to be general chairman of this development fund and that world-
wide campaigning was in hand through the latter's committee of Old
The Headmaster then made his comments on the school year. He
spoke first of the deaths of those who were associated with the school,
particularly of the loss of a School Prefect, A. G. S. Podhradsky. He
went on to thank the members of Staff, school officials and Mothers'
Guild for their continued support. Quoting some of the examination
results he thought that the year had been a good one academically.
Finally the Headmaster reasserted the objectives of the School, the
values which Ashbury attempts to inculcate.
D. B. AIcGaughey as Captain of the School then gave the X'aledic-
tory address, and immediately afterwards presented the Headmaster with
a painting on behalf of the Graduating Class.
The major speech of the afternoon was given by the High Commis-
sioner for New Zealand, His Excellency J. S. Reid. He addressed the
graduating class primarily, but his timely remarks had significance for
parents, students, and teaching staff alike. He suggested that much of

our education is, perhaps mistakenly, "devoted towards developing
qualities of leadership"; for although leaders are needed, "men of out-
standing character and great ability who can guide and stimulate the
rest of us to greater efforts and new achievements", many of us neither
win prizes nor become leaders. He went on to ask whether the alter-
native to this, unthinking following of an established leader, was good
enough for a graduating Ashburian, and suggested that home and school
would ensure that his present audience was not in that class of follower.
No, the instruction of school life was about to be replaced for the
graduates by "the Halls of Learning" whether they be universities,
professions or businesses. 'WW the accumulated knowledge and wisdom
of the race is available." For this a deal of self-discipline would be
required, for school discipline breaks down in an adult society, but there
were rewards to be gained, and here many of the better graduates would
make their mark. These people were not leaders in the accepted sense
but a nonetheless valuable second level of society who have no desire to
lead or no talent for directing others. This role was difficult, suggested
the speaker, for his audience with its background and training, because
the students were registered as citizens of a free democracy and also
members of a Protestant Christian Church. Those who tried to uphold
this role would meet tremendous pressures for conformity and quite
severe social penalties for independence of mind. His Excellency re-
called some of the challenges he had experienced in political service in
countries which were not democratic nor indeed Christian. He stressed
that parents and communities spent vast amounts of money not only to
ensure that students were able to make a living but also to help them
become good citizens. The traditions of school such as Ashbury de-
manded the highest possible; . . . "an acceptance of full responsibility
for opinions and beliefs, acceptance of our share, and more than our
share, of the work, honesty and courage of our convictions, especially
when we are in the minority." To be in the front row of the second
grade, he concluded, is a worthy and challenging goal for the majority
of students because after all there is not much room at the top. In a
society where there was not much "room at the top", he concluded that
to be in the front row of the second grade would be a worthy and chal-
lenging goal for the majority of students.
The presentations of academic prizes followed His Excellency's
speech. The Headmaster introduced the distinguished visitors to per-
form this: His Excellency W. A. Rose, High Commissioner for Trinidad
and Tobago; Major-General W. A. B. Anderson, O.B.E., CD., Adju-
tant-General Canadian Army; R. W. G. Darby Esq., B.A., .M.Ed.,
Vice-Principal of Ridgemont High School, Ottawa; and Donald Mac-
laren Esq., Vice-Chairman of the Board of Governors.
The Alemorial Prizes, Athletic Trophies, and Special Awards were
presented by the President of the Old Boys' Association, Blair S. Gil-
TH E AS H B U Rl AN si
niour. The Charles Rowley Booth Memorial Trophy was presented by
.Mrs. Stuart Mackay-Sniith. The Guest Speaker awarded The Gover-
nor-General's Medal to G. R. Garton.
The Closing Remarks were made by the Chairman, after which the
parents moved to the front lawns and the refreshment tents. Music was
provided by the Band of the Governor-General's Foot Guards. The
School Year was at its end.

The Twenty-Ninth Annual Conference of the Canadian Head-
masters' Association was held at St, Andrew's College, Aurora during
the first week of January 1964. All eighteen member schools were
represented by their headmasters.
President of the Association and Chairman for the Meeting was
Mr. Robert Coulter, Headmaster of St. Andrew's.
During the morning service in the School Chapel, a brass tablet, a
tribute from his fellow headmasters, was unveiled and dedicated to the
memory of the late Kenneth Ketchum, formerly Headmaster of St.
In addition to the regular business meetings the Conference was
addressed by Mr. Donald M. Graham, Director of Education, Forest
Hill Village, Toronto and Dr. J. R. H. Morgan, Director, The Ontario
Curriculum Institute, Toronto.
Representing the Ashbury Board of Governors at the Closing
Dinner was iVlr. Frank D. Bliss of Hamilton.

1. The visit to the National Research Council, 2nd, March.
We arrived at the N.R.C building in Sussex Drive punctually and
made our way to the Division of Applied Biology. Our host, Dr. D. C.
Mortimer, gave us a delightfully humorous talk about some of his work
with radio isotopes in Plant Physiology, and yet his manner indicated
the earnest approach typical of his kind.
The highly instrumented work of Cosmic Rays and High Energ)^
Particle Physics Deparmient bore a contrast. We were very interested
to see the impressive particle accelerator, and a little dazed at the com-
plexity of the computing section which was still analysing the data
obtained from the Canadian satelhte, Alouette I. Part of the instru-
mental section was destined for the 1965 Alouette II, and was available
for our inspection from a respectful distance.
In the afternoon, after a pleasant luncheon, we visited the National
Aeronautical Establishment at Uplands. The mammoth wind tunnel
was exciting, even in its silent presence, and the facts and figures con-
cerning its operation were impressive indeed.
2. The visit to Chalk River Atomic Ejiergy Research Plant, 31st, March.
The early morning drive to Chalk River was pleasant, and set the
tone for an absorbing tour. Dr. D. A. Keys, a pioneer of Atomic
Energy research in Canada, welcomed us and gave a comprehensive, but
always relevant, lecture illustrated by apt experiments and slides.
Wt examined scale models of XRX and NRU, the atomic piles used
for fundamental research, and then the actual devices themselves. The
highly elaborate control rooms were a feature to be remembered; their
cleanliness and efficiency took the eye. One felt untroubled about the
great energy potential available in the reactors from the point of view of
safetv% but impressed at its possibilities. This feeling bodes well for
the young scientists who made the trip.

Both the senior and intermediate classes of this competition were
poorly supported this year, and one unseasonal May Sunday morning
after Chapel live candidates competed for the two prizes before a meagre
In the opening senior section the boys read a poem of their own
choice. Grant in his plummy and sombre voice recalled "The Destruc-
tion of Sennacherib" in Byron's words; Lash read Gibson's "Flannan
Isle" sensitively; and Ewing, showing a pleasing awareness of his audi-
ence, narrated W. B. Yeats' "The Ballad of Fox Hunter". The set
piece of verse was T. S. Eliot's "Macavity the Mystery Cat". Neither
Grant nor E\\ ing conveyed any trace of the poem's absurd humour,
and Lash was too serious by far. No one found a suitable pace for the
reading, although this was a prepared poem. Finally, each of them had
a few minutes to look at Sassoon's "Rearguard" before reading from the
stage. Grant amply stressed the grimness of the content, but it was
Lash who read most successfully. The harshness of the verse, indeed
the hard quality of the spoken words themselves, came over well;
altogether it was a spirited rendering.
The intermediate competition was a lacklustre affair with only two
entrants. In the opening section, Sark was the better reader if only for
his sense of timing in W. S. Gilbert's "King Goodheart". For the set-
piece, Eliot's "Macavity", he came forward again showing commendable
freshness of interpretation when the audience had already heard it four
times in the preceding minutes. His reading of Keats' "Ode to Autumn"
was only just adequate; Barber, on the other hand, was too careless;
often the sense was lost, words were mispronounced, and the syntax

THE OPENING SPEECH
The Headmaster's spcccli rook place on rhc bright, w arm mornino
of September sixth. There was an inevitable restlessness among the
asseml)led students, but that was to be expected, and, after expressing his
hopes that we had all enjoyed a good vacation and his delight to see us
again, Mr. Perry welcomed the newcomers to Ashbury and then went
on to remind each boy of the growing demands of today's universities
and the efforts required to meet them. He reflected on the academic
and athletic success of the past year, adding that his hopes now were
aimed in the same direction, and expressed his belief that every boy he
addressed was capable of living up to it. He then pointed out the new
Staff members. When the speech was over, Mr. Perry was given three
meaningful cheers as he left the stage. And thus began another fruitful
year at Ashbury College.

HARD RAIN FALLING
The sun was shining and the birds were running about. A cloud
here and there broke the icy blue monotony of the sky. That icy blue.
Somewhere water was trickling out of an ever-open faucet. There was
a door creaking on fast-rusting hinges and a car, abandoned and forgotten
in haste when that hard rain fell.
There was a white man that had a black dog on this same street and
he's dead. In fact they are all dead. Very dead.
At least I think so. After the rain came all I saw was one man and
he was mostly rotted away. I guess he was lucky because he didn't die
right away like mother and father. Maybe he wasn't so lucky — I mean
to die so slow like that.
The Russians said it was us who did it first and we said it was the
Russians who did it first. Anyhow it doesn't matter any more. They
just don't exist. Personally I think it was the Swiss— they were always
acting so good and all. They just had to be up to something.
The sun doesn't go down anymore because there are two of them.
The second one just came and it won't go away. It's like having two
big eyes staring at you all the time. I'm pretty sure all the others are
dead. The birds and all are here but no people — not anywhere. But
it really isn't lonely and I can sit and read all day because no one can
stop that now.
60 r H E ASH B U Rl A N
We aren't all dead. I saw another man running down the street.
When he saw me though he ran away. He thought I was a Communist.
It's good that there is a lot food around and I can eat what I want.
I don't even worry about mv skin any more. I just eat what I want.
I think this is Sunday. Maybe not. It doesn't seem like Sunday at
all with no lawn mowers running and all. Maybe I'll start ours. Saw
that man again he was dead. The smell is pretty bad now because it's
so hot all the time. I may have to go out of town to get away from it.
Things are pretty lonely now but I don't think about it much.
I'm going to die. The rain got to me finally. I know it now. I
don't feel any pain but I know I'm going to die. I'm just sorry I have to
die so soon because it was so quiet and all. I can hardly see the paore and
I keep wondering if there is a Heaven or Hell but people said I was too
young to worry about that. It worries me now because it might be
overcrowded or something and there wouldn't be any room for me.
This is all I'll write now because I'm tired and I'm going to die so I'll say

The second sun blinked out and that nameless hard rain be^an to
fall penetrating everything. It was only making sure. . . .
Whenever a war has ended, it is customary to set aside a day to
commemorate the signing of the treaty which ended the hostilities. The
name of the day persists until the war is erased from the memories of all
those who should know. November 11, Armistice Day, is such a day.
It sets aside November eleventh as the day to commemorate the sicrninCT
of the armistice which ended the hostilities of \\'orld Wat One. The
Great War, as it was called, has all but faded from the memories of the
peoples of the world — all except those who fought in it and lost sons and
husbands by it.
Now these people are few and far between. Many have died or
wasted awa\^ Others are decaying in old peoples' homes, isolated from
the realities of the world. These are the few who can remember and
have something besides a vague school-taught image of the Great War.
So many of this generation have no idea of the total destruction and the
carnage which World War One wreaked upon Europe, indeed the
TH E AS H B U RI AN 61
world. This war killed or maimed countless millions of people and
injured many others, not physically, hut mentally. The effects of
World War I were far reaching and enduring, for they chang^ed the face
Historians tend to put the two great conflicts of this century into a
concrete group. The Second World War is thought of as a continuation
of the first great war. Now, a young, forceful generation has arisen
which seeks to forget war and its effects.
This generation wants no war and will haye none. It cannot con-
ceiye of the tremendous passions which gaye rise to these conflicts.
Perhaps, with maturity, the present generation will see why Armis-
tice Day is much more than just another holiday. It has, among the
myriad commemoratiye days and celebrations, more significance than
any other sanctified day which we might set up. Armistice Day speaks
out and states a fact— the war is oyer, not just for now but foreyer.
The world has a reminder which tells all nations neyer again to inyohe
themselyes in that most terrible of human conflicts — w^ar.
THE GRAND COUNCIL
A few years ago I had the priyilege of being allowed to attend an
Indian Council, and the yiyid picture of this eyent has remained fixed in
my mind eyer since.
The night was yery clear but dark due to the presence of only a
quarter moon. The flickering red-cedar fire in the center of the large
council rino- illuminated the warriors filing silently into their appointed
places around the circumference of the enclosure. The sombre shadows
cast by the trees aboye made eerie outlines on the well trampled earth.
The continual throbbing of the council drums lent a dreary air to the
After a short while a leather-clothed natiye dashed into the circle
and immediately the beat of the drums haired. He pronounced the
arriyal of the great chief and, turning, dashed out again. After a few
moments the wizened chief entered, followed by a group of chiefs in
ceremonial garb. The old chief took a position before the company and
after bidding a welcome, he proceeded to lead the assembled brayes in
prayers to the four winds, beseeching them to send fayourable \\-eather.
After this religious ceremony the young braves proceeded to give
reports of interesting- and often fascinating experiences and discoyeries
to the learned chief and also to ask questions of his amassed knowledge.
The ranger reports being terminated, one of the lesser chiefs began to
accept challenges from the council body in the Indian games which
ranged from nature identification contests, wood chopping, and fire
building event to leg and arm wrestling.
At a given sign the games were terminated and tlie Chief began to
narrate a story about Indian lore to the Council which became so en-
thralled that the great length of time went by unnoticed. As the sky
began to turn grev in the east, the tribes stood together and in unison
cried out a prayer to the great spirit, W'akonda, represented by the
Thunderbird atop the totem pole. Following this the braves made their
way in silence back to their respective camps, to return later to their own
The man shaded his ev^es, and gazed into the distance. He tried to
look beyond the sand-covered wasteland that surrounded him, hoping to
catch a glimpse of a town, or at least a water-hole. All he could see was
mile after mile of seemingly endless desert, dotted here and there with
withered cacti and heat-blackened boulders. Disappointed, the man
sought refuge from the intense heat of the sun beside an out-cropping of
To anyone else, the heat would be unbearable. But the man was a
nomad, who travelled constantly throughout this arid region, and so he
had come to accept the presence of heat as an unavoidable drawback.
His skin, like the rocks of this, his native land, was darkened by the sun,
and constant exposure had made the outer layer of flesh hke leather.
Despite the fact that he was accustomed to this climate, beads of sweat
still rolled from his brow, and his chest heaved convulsively, drawing in
draughts of stifling warm air.
The man would have been content to lie in the sparse shade provided
by the rocks, and be comforted by that clammy sweat. But he knew
that he must find water, for he could feel the drv^ness slowly creeping
from his parched throat down towards his belly. After a timeless inter-
val, he painfully managed to stand erect, and continue his journey.
But as the day wore on, and the sun reached its zenith, and there was
no relief in sight, the man knew that the end was approaching. It was
a feeling he had experienced before, just before he was rescued by an
isolated water-hole. But this time, there was no water-hole in sight.
I lis feet became heavy, and difficult to lift. His head throbblcd, his
vision was blurry, and his tongue hung out of his mouth, pleading for
Just when the man was ready to collapse from sheer exhaustion, he
saw the stranger. The man bHnkcd his swollen cvclids, and looked agjain.
TH E AS H B U RI AN 63
The stranger was no more than fifr\' \'ards away. The man began to
run, or rather stumble, towards his saxiour. But the heat and lack of
water had greatly weakened the man, and he fell headlong on the burning
sand. Unable to rise, he lifted his head, and watched the stranger
The stranger, with great gentleness, stooped over the prostrate
figure and touching him lighth- on the head said, "(.'omc with me, we

OTHER PEOPLE'S AMBITIONS FOR ME
For as long as I can remember, other people have been trying to
make up my mind as to which profession I should pursue. Each person
that involves himself with me is convinced that the career he has in mind
is ideally suited for me, and that in no time I would rise to the top of the
profession and become a financial success. However, despite their
sincerity and interest, I have continually refused their advice, for I feel
that it is really none of their business. I find that this attitude of dis-
interest will discourage the majority of my would-be benefactors; how-
ever, a small minority refuse to give up, and continually make a nuisance
of themselves bv^ deciding my future whenever I am careless enough to
let myself be seen by them.
For instance, there is my Uncle Fred. Uncle Fred is perhaps the
most persistent of all my advisors. Whenever I see him he launches into
his sales-pitch, describing in glowing terms the advantages of being a
lawyer. \\'hile in the process of brainwashing me. Uncle Fred builds
himself up as a sort of minor Perry Mason. I find that this is his greatest
weakness — his pride — and usually I can switch the conversation around
to something like "The Crown versus Jasper Quincy", (L'ncle Fred's
greatest triumph). As Uncle Fred babbles on, basking in glory, I can
usually slip away unnoticed.
However, Mr. Laskin, our neighbour, is quite a different matter.
He specializes in the "soft sell", and so is not easily thrown off course.
Mr. Laskin is an insurance salesman who can't understand why anybody
would not want to sell insurance. Although not as persistent as L^ncle
Fred, he nevertheless makes his presence felt by dropping some sort of
remark intended to draw my attention to the fact that the insurance
business is booming. L'sually this remark is directed to someone else,
but spoken loud enough so that I can hear it. I find that the only way to
get rid of Mr. Laskin is to turn on the radio so loud that nothing he says
is heard by anyone else, me in particular.
Aunt Dorothy, although only an occasional visitor to our home, is
the most direct in approach. She used to be a nurse, and is firmly con-
vinced that what our famiU' needs is a o-ood doctor in it. Practically
every time that she comes to our house she not only mentions the fact
but demands to know at least ten good reasons why I should not become
a doctor. Although I protest that I cannot stand the sight of blood,
Aunt Dorothy is not one to argue with. There is no way to put Aunt
Dorothy off the track, short of being rude.
Despite everybody's advice and hopes for me, they can't make me
change my mind. I have decided on a career, and intend to stick by my
decision no matter what others say. I want to be a garbageman.
A REFLECTION ON PHYLLIS McGINLEY
To most people, the current civil rights struggle taking place in
society means the Negroes' battle for equality. However, little do they
realize that women are once again on the march, and are demanding that
they be recognized as equals by the opposite sex.
Women are taking advantage of certain rights granted them this
century, and in effect are attempting to "bite the hand that feeds them".
They are trying to take over control of the government — the very body
that granted them the right to vote. At this very moment there are no
less than four female representatives in Canada's House of Commons.
Also, a total of two major Canadian cities have women as their mayors.
Without doubt, the women have banded together and are now laying
plans for the overthrow of our present stable government.
If such a plot ever succeeds, it will bring about the ruin of our fair
Dominion. Indeed, it would probably lead other women in foreign
countries to attempt similar coups. The result is obvious: a world
dominated by women, with males being relegated to a position of little or
no importance. Alore important still, well-run political machines built
up during the period of the male's supremacy would collapse in a state
of confusion, only to be replaced by groups of fanatical women.
One can well imagine what would be accomplished by women
during tenure in office (supposing that males would eventually recover
from this blow and seize power once again ) . Canada's Parliament would
degenerate into an extended coffee-party; the cabinet would be rocked
by scandal (the Minister of Fashion dyes her hair); the "hot-line"
between Washington and Moscow would become a gossip line; nothing
would be decided at disarmament conferences, except that blue shoes do
not go with a red dress; cosmetic manufacturers would be placed under
a government trusteeship; and (heaven forbid!) Italian movies would
be banned througliout the country.
As one can see, the results would be just short of disastrous. There
seems to be no way of preventing women from taking over, however.
Their ranks arc constantly bein^T swelled by recruits M'ho have been
THE AS H B U RI AN
thoroue^hlv indoctrinated in methods of terrorism by such groups as
Girl Guides or Brownies.
But males should not despair. I have a solution to the entire
problem which should be satisfactory to every man. Naturally I
expect the women to raise some sort of protest. After all, slavery has
been outlawed for the last one hundred years.
THE MATHEAIATICS MASTER'S LAMENT
Oil come all vou fellows
and listen to me.
I'll tell you a story
a story of glee.
Of a bunch of young fellows
so strong and so tall
Whose algebra marks
are the lowest of all.
Lowest of all
Lowest of all
Whose algebra marks
are the lowest of all.
They leave in the springtime
Come back in the fall
And work on equations
Quadratics and all
They work in the classrooms
And out in the hall
But their algebra marks
Are the lowest of all.
Oh mother dear mother
Oh what shall I do
My sorrows are many
My joys they are few.
I can't find the square root
Of X minus two
I'll pack up my text books
And come back to you.

Oh Johnny dear Johnny
Don't take it so sad.
It's the very same trouble
Your poor daddv had.
But many kind masters
A\'ill answer the calk
To help out the boys
who have no marks at all.
Now the boys in the Fourth Form
The big and the small
Share one thing in common
They've no brains at all
They have the best master
Best master of all
But their Algebra marks
Are the lowest of all.
The same is true
Of Six A and B
They're breaking the hearts of
The powers that be.
They're driving the lot of us
Right up the wall
For their Algebra Marks are
the lowest of all.
Sing softly, sing softly,
A requiem mass.
No one in grade thirteen
Is likely to pass.
If all of their masters
Had knuckles of brass
Their Algebra marks
Would improve by Xmas.
I'll sing the sad story
Of five and five A
And poor Air. Dalton
His hair's turning grey
If I had to teach them
I'd clobber them all
And gate them on Saturday
Down in Rhodes Hall
Down in Rhodes Hall
Down in Rhodes Hall
I'd gate them on Saturday
Down in Rhodes Hall.
Some boys they are stupid
Some boys they are bright
Some boys have no problems
With old Hall and Knight.
They rush to their classrooms
\\'ith howls of delight
And their Algebra marks are
As high as a kite.
High as a kite.
High as a kite,
Their Algebra marks are
As high as a kite.

OLD BOYS^ SECTION
OLD BOYS' \\'EEKEND XO\\ 9rh and lOrh, 1963
Once again this \\eekend proved to be a great success. Events
started at 9:00 a.m. Saturday with an Old Boys' football and soccer
match against the school. The football game under the able coaching of
Tinv Hermann, was one of the most exciting games ever seen between
these t\vo old rivals. The Old Boys on the school one yard line in the
closing seconds were unable to score and game ended 27-21 in favour
of the school. The boys were also able to take care of the men in the
soccer match 3 goals to 1.
Following the two games a buffet luncheon was held in the school
gym. .More than one hundred persons were there to aid in the salute to
Coach Hermann, who retired in "62" after handling the Ashbury 1st
football team for ten most successful years.
The 9:00 p.m. formal dance, in the Argyle Building, had a Carribean
setting this year adding a pleasant atmosphere to a very enjoyable
evening. Apologies must be made to the very late invitations sent to the
Ashbury parents, an oversight which will not occur in the future. Sixty-
six couples were in attendance and it is the hope of the Old Boys' Com-
mittee that next year's dance will have twice the amount out to enjoy
this gala evening.
With the kind invitation of the Headmaster, Mr. Perry, a reception
Mas held at Ashbury House on Sunday at 12 noon. This was a very
cordial gathering winding up a highly successful weekend put on by the
New Ashbury College Old Boys' Association.
If by chance you were not able to attend this years festivities we
urge you to make a date for the big "64" Weekend for we can promise
that you will have a ball.

attended, enjoyed this outing. On the receiving end — the Headmaster
and Mrs. Perry, Mr. and Mrs. Frank D. Bliss and Mr. E. N. Rhodes, Jr.
LONDON — March 23rd, 1964 — For the second year, a Reception was
held in London for Ashbury Old Boys, Parents and Friends, with the
Headmaster welcoming the guests. Thanks to the generosity of the
High Commissioner for Canada and to the assistance of J. S. P. Arm-
strong^, an Ashbury Old Boy, and at present. Agent General for Ontario
in London, the Reception was held in one of the Canadian Government
rooms at 1 Grosvenor Square.
The most interesting feature of the London gathering was the
number of different school groups who attended. In addition to many
recent Old Boys, there were former staff, Old Boys from Abinger Hill
and present parents. Among the distinguished guests were the Earl and
Countess Alexander of Tunis, and their son Brian, J. S. P. Armstrong,
Air Commodore and Mrs. C. W. Busk, Dr. G, D. W. Cameron, Air
Commodore and Mrs. B. J. R. Roberts, Mr. Kenneth AVeston.
OTTAWA — M^y 5th, 1964 — What was originally intended to be a
relatively small Reception at the Rideau Club for approximately 100
persons, turned out to be a "sell-out", with over 250 attending. As the
Club was not prepared for such a large number, quarters were somewhat
cramped but in spite of this everyone seemed to think it was an excellent
affair. To greet the guests were the Chairman, Commodore Ross
and Mrs. Ross, the Headmaster and Mrs. Perry and Mr. and Mrs. Blair
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CORPORATION
On June 18th, the Annual Aieeting of the Corporation was held,
and this was followed by a Dinner which was addressed by A. B. R.
Lawrence, Q.C., A4.P.P. He spoke of the proposed expansion plans
and also, very amusingly, reminisced about his experiences as a member
of Parliament in Toronto.

ASHBURY DEVELOPMENT CAMPAIGN
It is probably not news that Ashbury is planning to make additions
to its building which will add much needed facilities to the school, and
increase its boarding potential.
The Campaign, initiated by the present Board of Governors, has
appointed D. Cargill Soutliam as its Chairman and already much progress
has been made to build up the necessary organization.
The proposed new buildings include a complete Junior School,
with accommodation for 40 boarders and 50 to 60 day boys. It will
contain dormitories, classrooms and all other necessary facilities. Also
to be constructed as soon as possible is a new gymnasium. The existing
gymnasium, which is now much too small for basketball and other indoor
activities, will be converted into a panelled library, complete with study
rooms, an audio-visual room and a Committee Room. The new Unit
will include a bright new entrance to the School, with offices and a
Needless to say, the prospect of having more rooms for various
activities is a pleasant one. The plans for the basement of the gymnasium
call for Games Rooms, Cadet Rooms, Band Rooms, Ski Rooms and a new
Locker Room for students and visitors.
Although a good start has already been made, it is expected that the
official opening of the Campaign to raise funds for the development will
commence sometime in the Autumn of 1964.
THE MOTHERS' GUILD
The Ashbury .Mothers' Guild had another busy year with regular
monthly meetings and two interesting sales— The Autumn Outgrown
Clothing and Sports Equipment Sale and Spring Tea and Bake Sale.
As a result of the hard work and interest of this group sufficient
money has been raised to purchase drapes for the junior School dormi-
tories, 2 fine silver services, 2 tablecloths and 100 silver spoons. In
addition, the Guild has added ?^200.00 to its Investment Fund and pro-
vided a $250.00 Bursary.
The school is grateful for the continued interest of this group led by
a Committee consisting of:
Mrs. J. E. Copeland, President; Airs. J. B. Ewing, \^ice-President; Mrs.
F. R. Thurston, Secretary; Mrs. A. L. Thurlow, Treasurer; Mrs. G. D.
Turner, .Membership; Mrs. H. M. Weld, Telephone Convener; Mrs. E. L.

THE ASH BU RI AN 81
\^olume IX, niv ninth, and last. Junior Ashburian! In spite of all
the rumors to the contrary, this is niv^ last magazine, and now that I have
started to write this, I have become extremely nostalgic. Usually about
this time of the year I am an impossible person, worrying about this
important job, as well as the examination results, and whether this or that
boy will arrive safely in some far corner of the world. Yes, I shall miss
it all. When you work w^ith boys closely, as one must do to produce a
reasonable addition to our "Senior" Ashburian, you get to know them
well, and discover characteristics that have been dormant in the class-
room, or on the playing field. A couple of the more discerning past
editors have told me things about myself that I had either forgotten or
pushed into the background!
This final year has been interesting, with Beebie as the Editor. For
those who bother to read this Foreword, there will be no need for me to
elaborate further. I would like to mention, however, the wonderful
support given our Editor by his parents. Dr. and .Mrs. Brodie-Brockwell
made a special journey from Montreal to take Beebie and me out to dinner
so that we could discuss the implications of the job of Editor, and any
other matters connected with the publication of the magazine.
This year the Junior Ashburian goes into its ninth year.
I am afraid there is not much in the way of a literary section because
we started a little late in the year. I would like to thank .Mr. Polk, .Mr.
Spencer, my assistants, and the boys themselves for their fine help to get
this show on the road.
In other respects the magazine should be up to the fine standards that
former editions of the Junior Ashburian have raised it to. I certainly
hope that I have not let us down.
My thanks to the Junior School.
Ten years multiplied by two become twenty years. Between them
Mrs. Dalton and Mr. Spencer have given twenty years to the Junior
School. Their contribution is the greater when we remember that the
Junior School has been an entity for only these past ten years.
My notes in the 1963 Ashburian paid tribute to Mr. Spencer; to his
value as a "character"; to his abihties in the classroom and on the playing
field. There is little need to repeat. Those who know him, and all
junior school parents do, will understand how much he will be missed.
He is leaving to take over the junior department of the Halifax Grammar
School. iMay his problems be few and his bridge partners astute.
Mrs. Dalton is the type of teacher which every Junior School should
have. Boys going to school for the first time are a little frightened, but
very excited. To them it is a new and almost grown-up world that they
are entering. The experience is usually the most momentous one in their
young lives. This is why the first teacher a boy has is so very important.
It was here that Mrs. Dalton made her great contribution. In her little
world, separated from the rest of us, school days were happy days for
her boys. She gently eased them into the restricting routine of school
life and made learning a pleasure. Our best wishes go with her as she
enters the business world.
THE ASHB U RI AN
L. I. H. Spencer
The dictionary tells us that a personality is the identity, character
and personal traits of an individual person. The person whom I am
going to tell of, it not someone easily forgotten, but always remembered.
When I met him for the first time, it was my first day at Ashbury and
I was alone and very timid. He soon had me feeling at my ease and
talking freely about anything and everything. I never forgot that first
day and in the years since, my admiration and respect for him has only
I am not the only one who feels this way, for every student who has
ever gone to Ashbury and known him, either as master, friend or ac-
quaintance, will always remember him. His robust build, his witt)^
humour, and his jovial personality, could, each in themselves, never be
The eames of soccer and cricket took on a new lio^ht with him as
coach. At a game, one might hear a haught)'' cry of encouragement from
our one-man Australian cheering section to spur us on to new and greater
In the classroom his way was no less dynamic. He always had the
right answer and would always defend his views to the last. Many a
riotous time was spent in fast argument with the wizard himself, only in
the end for the student to be forced to yield, defeated.
Of his many abilities I think his greatest is his fantastic way of
teaching. He could make a rather dull Shakespearean work come alive
in his spirited, accented, orations. Work became a thing of the past; he
turned History into an exciting tale of adventure, conquest, and explora-
tion; English Literature, English Grammar, and Geography all took on
a new fascination.
As editor of the Junior School Ashburian, head of the Debating
Teams, and head of the Public Speaking Teams, his great abilities for
organization and management shone through. He encouraged many
students in writing and other such endeavours always bringing new
honours to Ashbury.
"Seven-no-trump!" became a common cry as he quickly made his
way from game to game, until he ultimately became bridge champion of
Ottawa. It was also due to his organization that the game of bridge was
introduced into the school. Last year the tale was the same as he and
his partner proved victorious in the bridge tournament.
Now he is leaving Ashbury, and moving on. Ashbury is losing a true
friend, and all who have known him will miss him, but let us hope that he
is as true as his boomerang and that iMr. Spencer will return.

GOOD BYE TO A NICE FRIEND
iMrs. Dalton is leaving Ashbury this year, after teaching Form I for
ten years. We are sad that she is leaving the school, and if she should
ever go back to teaching, we hope that she will have a vcrv nice time.
Even though she is not going to teach, we still wish her a happy time.

THE ASH B U Rl A S s5
The school day is full; however we find time for various activities
beyond the routine of classroom and games fields. Some of these are
listed as a pleasant reminder for the boys, and to give parents a fuller
picture of our life.
CULTURE. This rather pompously named Monday half hour
provides quite a varied program. The initial period is always taken by
Air. Polk and explains the School Prayer, Hymn, the graces said at meals;
gives a brief history of the School and its house system.
Last year several periods were devoted to slides. These took us far
afield. Mr. Attwell brought a friend whose pictures were of the Boy
Scout Jamboree in Greece. Air. Mncent showed us scenes of his earlier
teacliing da^s in East Africa. Air. Alorgan provided interesting slides
of Sable Island, and, closer to home, Air. Perry showed us the movie
record of recent Ashburv" years.
For those musicalU' inclined, we heard the RCAF band with its fine
vocalists (the entire school had this treat); one of Aliss W'oodburn's
pupils gave an exciting piano recital, and Air. Hewitt gave us two after-
noons in the Chapel where he explained and played the organ.
One of the most interesting of the Culture periods was provided by
Air. Pemberton, head of the History Department here, who crave an
account of the hour by hour events leading up to the death of Lincoln.
We had talks on the Stock Alarket, on Shakespeare's Engrland, on
Education in the North — this was a talk given by Air. C. Baker of the
Deparmient of External Affairs, Education Division, a valuable half hour;
and on asbestos mining. Our Culture periods cover a wide rans^e of

HAILE SELASSIES VISIT \v:is one of the highlights of the year
and Alakonnen must have felt particularly proud of his grandfather
when he awarded the School a half-holiday. This half-holiday became
for us a crames afternoon:
1. Our Under 1 2 soccer team played against Sedbergh and won 3-0.
2. \\'hile this match was being played, a Track Alcet was held
for all boys 10 years and under.

3. This was followed by a soccer match for the under lO's.
4. Next came a House soccer match — Alexander (2) vs Con-
Finally Mr. Anderson and Mr. Hillary took a group of boys to see
a fine display of gymnastics by a touring Danish team.
ACADEMIC STIMULATION. The Sensational Seven Club (the
top seven boys in each Form) and the Top Banana Club (those gaining a
percentage of 80% or better) were maintained this year. Members of
the Top Banana Club at various times were Bissonnet, Davis, Farrugia,
Firestone, Macfarlane (who once gained the superlative average of 90%),
Aiichelson and Vennor-Morris.
An innovation was the awarding of House points for academic
achievement. A boy who gained a First Class average in terminal
examinations was given two points for his House, a Second Class average
brought one point. These points were counted for the Wilson Shield
which is awarded annually to the School House, Alexander. Connaught,
or Woollcombe, gaining the highest number of points. Until this year
these points had been given solely on athletic abilities.
The day free from school for the Form making the highest increase
in marks between Christmas and Easter was won by Transitus A. An
account of this day appears elsewhere.
THE FOOTBALL DINNER. Moulds, Cann IV and Farrugia
represented the Junior School at this event November 22.
ACROSS THE TOP OF THE WORLD. On December 4 Phillip
Allen was brought to the School for a 1 \ hour program on the Northland.
He showed slides, described his experiences within the Arctic Circle,
and answered many questions.
JOTTINGS. 35 Juniors scored points for their houses in the
annual cross country runs. This is about 33?^ of the Junior School and
must be close to a record.
Mr. Gillean started a shooting club and every Junior boarder had
his turn in the rifle range.
The Best Room Award went to Room 4 — Comett, Room Captain.
His room mates were Cann IV, Knox and McGuff.

MEMORIAL WING NOTES
Once again the number of junior boarders forced us to establish
an "Island in the Big House". This is a large room in the senior school
taken over by juniors. They follow our normal routine from rising to
bed time, and indeed many feel flattered to think thcv are over with the
giants of the upper school. However it is much more suitable to have
all juniors under one roof, and next year will bring this about.
The year has been a good one with only the normal, expected,
amount of boyish mischief to deal with. How dull life would be if
every boy did what he was told and never got into trouble! "Dealing"
with the occasional trouble and also maintaining the happy atmosphere
was my right hand (and arm and leg, indeed bod\^ and spirit) man,
-Mr. Gillean. Although all of us took our days for evening duty, Mr.
Gillean was a permanent force in the A\'ing. His evening milk and
cooky sessions vith the Monitors will give these bovs pleasant, lasting
memories, and the session is a privilege which the younger ones look
forward to when they rise to the exalted status of Monitor. Older boys
know they could go to Mr. Gillean with their problems, and he held
many a long, calming session.
Mrs. Boyce has been equally important to the smooth operation of
our Memorial ^^'ing. Laundry and dry cleaning has to be supervised;
little boys have to be bathed; buttons and name tapes have to be sewed
on and scratches bandaged. But mainly httle bovs need a touch of
mothering to counteract the mascuHne atmosphere of a boys school.
Mrs. Boyce's room, at the other end of the hall from Mr. Gillean's, was
the evening centre for the younger ones and occasional parties, aided by
the television set, brought cheer to many a small boy's heart.
JUNIOR SCHOOL CHAPEL
At 8:40 every morning the Juniors line up on the stairs of Aroryle
and then file over to the Chapel. Here we have a short service as a start
for the day. The Junior Monitors read the Lesson — a very valuable
ex-perience for them. Our Chaplain, Mr. Attwell gives us a short inter-
pretation of the Lesson; we sing a hymn and say prayers. As a result of
this simple Service, I feel we are better able to start the academic day at
This year members of the staff" took turns reading the Lessons each
Wednesday. On Fridays the Senior Chaplain, Rev. K. B. Monks, takes

THE JUNIOR LIBRARY
The Library, while an improvement over past years, is still too
small. Boys can browse through the shelves, but there is no space to
sit and read. The situation will be remedied in our new Junior School
building which has a large room set aside for the purpose.
However, boys will read if they are encouraged, and this year more
boys read more books than ever before in our ten year history. One
reason for the increased use of the Library was surely the large number
of colourful jacketed books which were bought with the generous contri-
butions of Airs. iMichelson. The money has made possible the purchase
of well over one hundred books.
A4rs. Burritt is thanked, too, for her presentation of boys annuals;
these are very popular with all ages.
Forms I and II have libraries in their classrooms, and the Form I
library was almost doubled in size by the thoughtful gift of Mrs.
R.CA.F. BAND CONCERT
The entire School crowded into the Argyle x\ssembly Hall on
November the 18th to listen to an instrumental and vocal concert put on
by the R.CA.F. Band. It was a most enjoyable event.
Meeting of the Preparatory School Committee
of the Canadian Headmasters^ Association
Held Saturday, April 18, 1964 at Upper Canada College under the
Chairmanship of Alan Stephen.
This was a valuable and worthwhile meeting attended by represen-
tatives from no less than twenty independent schools.
The first exchange of ideas was informal on Friday evening at a
Dinner held at the University Club of Toronto.
The Saturday morning session was given over to a talk by Dr.
R. B. W. Jackson, Director of Educational Research of the Ontario
College of Education. This was a somewhat frightening appraisal of
the increasing dominance in our lives of the machine. His address was
so highly regarded that a request was made for copies to be sent for
distribution to Headmasters and Chairmen of Boards of the schools
attending the Meeting.
Following the pattern set in past years, the afternoon session was
given over to a discussion of topics which had been submitted by mem-
Such matters as the changes in the Alaths curriculum, academic
requirements for School teams, oral vs. formal French, cuisenaire arith-
metic, Formal spelling were discussed.
For the cuisenaire method, valuable only through Grades 3 or 4, it
is apparently necessary to have specially trained teachers.
Due to the transfer of Mr. S. Daratha to France on exchange teach-
ing, the Junior School art classes were taken over by Major H. J. Woods.
Classes were formed in three groups, Transitus A and B, III A and B,
and II IC, with each group having a double period each week.
Sketch books and pencils were purchased, and all classes began
sketching very early in the school year from various models.
Naturally the early efforts were not outstanding, as not too many
boys were able to get enthusiastic about serious sketching, but a distinct
improvement was evident as the Christmas holidays approached, and a
project for each boy to produce a personal Christmas card for his family
brought some very good results.
After the holidays it was suggested by Aliss Woodburn that perhaps
music and art instruction could be combined to illustrate the lives and
works of the composers Beethoven and Haydn.
This was done with the boys supplying their own materials and
having a free rein in presentation and lay-out. The results here were
very encouraging and the display showing much originality was put on
view at the Parents Reception in the spring.
Of the 65 junior boys in the art classes about 15% show signs of
latent talent in this work, and it is hoped that they will continue to study
and practice in what can be a very rewarding hobby.
Some of the difficulties to be met and overcome in this work are
(a) classes are a bit too large for good instruction and personal super-
vision, (b) small school desks are not suitable for sketching (trestle
tables with the boys standing would be better) and (c) storage facilities
for all art supplies are needed.
Trips by classes to the National Gallery would be of immense help
in the teaching of art appreciation, but it is not clear how this could be
fitted into an already full school schedule.
On the whole it has been a pleasant and rewarding year, and I am
satisfied the boys have gained some knowledge of art appreciation.
MUSIC CLASSES IN THE JUNIOR SCHOOL
This year in our music classes at Ashbury the ORFF system of
teaching was introduced in the early grades. We are proud to be among
the first schools in Ottawa to use this ingenious method which gives the
student an opportunity to experience music with his whole being by
singing, pla\ing the lovely sounding ORFF instruments speaking and
moving in rhythm. In time the children begin to create rhythm and
melodies of their o\\'n without the tedious study of notation.
The older boys were introduced to the fundamentals by means of
recorders and folk songs. In coordination with the art classes some
outstanding projects were done on the times and music of Beethoven and
Mozart. It has been an interesting and successful year.
The music prizes were presented at the closing ceremonies to those
listed in "The Ashburian".

JUNIOR PUBLIC SPEAKING
For his well prepared speech on "The Conservation of Canadian
Wild Life", Tony Farrugia was awarded the prize for the best pubhc
speaker in the Junior School. In spite of his inclusion of forests under
the title "Wild Life", his intimate manner of speaking was so impressive
that one almost forgot that forests were not wild life at all!
JUNIOR SCHOOL POETRY READING COMPETITION
Before the whole of the Junior School assembled in Argvle, six
finalists competed for the C. G. Drayton Prizes.
In the senior section the three candidates first read a prepared poem,
G. K. Chesterton's "The Donkey". NeiA^es played a big part in the
breathless nature of the recitations and frequently words and phrases
were obscured. Brodie-Brockwell alone showed any understanding
of the poem and evoked some feeling in the last stanza. Then the can-
didates were presented with W. B, Yeats' "The Fiddler of Doonev" for
an unprepared test. This poem was naturally less successfully rendered.
The Junior Section had prepared A. E. W^etherald's "The Plow-
man". Here the reading was of a good standard. The three candidates
were also asked to read "The Fiddler of Dooney". Here lifeless and
hesitant readings discredited MacDonald and Morris, while Osmond's
appropriately cheerful rendering with all the \\'ords easily audible made
him a clear winner.
Prizes to I. G. C. Brodie-Brockwell and P. W. H. Osmond were
announced later. The assembly concluded with a fcM- remarks on the
performances from Mr. Batts, the Senior School's English master.
UNDER 14 SOCCER
Don iMoulds, the Captain of the Under 14 Soccer Team, lead his
team to victory at Sedbergh on September 25 th. The Sedbergh bov^s
were not able to get their usual practice games, and were defeated 4-0.
However, for the return game at Ashbury — one of the most exciting
Junior games in my ten years at Ashbury — Sedbergh boys were able to
score a goal at the end of the game, to defeat .Mould's excellent team 1-0.
The fine spirit of sportsmanship displayed at the game, and afterwards
during the discussion over milk and cookies, was an example for the
Captain's successor to remember. As every boy on both teams played
so well, there is no member of either side who can be singled out for

than ever, but our optimism was unjustified. 1 lowever, the trip back
from Montreal was a different story for the team had managed to defeat
Selwyn House 2-1 in a well fought struggle for victory. October 5th,
1963 is an important date in my life, for that last nunute goal, unexpected

JUNIOR CRICKET XI
The season started very well for the Junior Cricket Team for we
were able to beat Bishop's after a very short practice season, due to the
miserable spring weather. The next game was also at Ashbury, against
Sedberg^h School. This was a second victory, and we were confident of
an undefeated season. As you would expect, it was a very happy crowd
who set off on the annual journey to Lennoxville. However, victory
was denied us, due to "a tired team which did not have enough sleep"
(Mr. Spencer's decision). The trip was great, and even though we
could not win the cup outright, we enjoyed our two days. The final
game up at Montebello, coming in the middle of the examination turmoil,
was a relaxino- day. The opposition felt sorry for us, and did not work
the team too hard.

HOUSE AND LEAGUE GAMES
While every boy may not get onto one of the teams which play
against other schools, almost every Junior over ten years of age is assigjned
to one of the intramural teams in soccer and hockey. Here the excite-
ment and value of competition often approaches that found in our
Soccer. The semi-finals of League play matched W'cjlverhampton
(1) against Luton (0), and Arsenal (3) against .Manchester (0). The
final was close and required overtime to give Arsenal the win over
In House Soccer, x\lexander defeated Connaught 2-0 in the semi-
finals and went to score ten points for the Wilson Shield by beating
Hockey. In the semi-final games, Toronto over Chicago 1-0, and
Boston over Montreal 3-1. In the final, watched by the entire Junior
School at the Auditorium, Palmer scored for Toronto to give them the
win over Boston, 1-0.
The Gibson Award for the greatest contribution to the National

OUR CLASS TRIP
On AIny 6th 1964, we started walking down town. \\t walked
through the official residence and grounds of Governor-General G. P.
Vanier. Our next stop was at Mr. Polk's house where we met his wife
and dog. When we arrived at City Hall we were shown the air-con-
ditioning system at the top of the building. The view of the Ottawa
River and surrounding area was impressive. We were then shown
through the council chamber, committee room and the secretarial offices,
x^s we were leaving we received some pamphlets. We then walked
down Sussex Drive to the War Museum \\here we saw a field cannon
(or gun), a German World War II plane, swords, large model of a ship,
depth mine, a 15th century crossbow and a search Hght. A\'e then went
to the Archives where we saw an immense model of Quebec CXty, Plains
of Abraham, etc., and a quite large model of a ship, and some old docu-
ments. We went to the x\rt Gallery for a quick 20 minute stay. At
the Chateau Laurier we swam for an hour. Mr. Polk arranged three
races of which Cuzner, Sharp and Nelms were the winners. In the
winner's race Nelms came first so he was the all-time champ. After a
well enjoyed meal at the Honey Dew we saw the 'incredible Mr.
Limpet" at the Regent. \\'e then took a bus home.
It was a wonderful day away from school.
MiRSKY III— Trans A
IIIC CLASS TRIP
One afternoon in May, IIIC led by Mr. Sinclair plunged beneath
the waves of the swimmingr bath at the Chateau Laurier. It was \\-onder-
ful to think that we were swimming, while the rest of the school were in
the hot and sticky classroom. It is a fine bath. There is a diving board
and steps for the less adventurous. Masks and flippers were to be seen.
Everybody did his best and we all enjoyed it very much.
Then came the long, hard wait for the call to chow. When the
moment arrived, a huge thundering sound was heard as IIIC invaded the
cafe. \\t split up into groups, but whether at small table or large,
everyone had a big "blow-out", not forgetting a little sugar!
After lunch we spent our time looking around, having our shoes
shined or buying candy, until the bus took us back to Ashbury. That
was one of the best days and meals we have ever had. Thank you Mr.

FORM NOTES -TRANSITUS A
Brodie-Brockwell: Gren is always in someone's "doghouse" because
he won't conform. It has been predicted by a certain master that
he will walk through Phillips Square (Montreal) in six years time,
and there will Beeb be sprouting avant garde poetry to his adoring
fans. While this might make B-B happy, what about his duty to
Dr. and Mrs. Brodie-Brockwell?
Cuzner: Charles has now proved to himself that "it can be done" and in
spite of several rough patches in the early part of the year, he
finished it a very happy boy. He was even mentioned in the "Top
EsPAiLLAT I: "Espie" has a running feud with "a certain master", and
although this takes quite a deal of his time, he did arrange to finish
well up in the class. He says he won't be back in September. Wq
shall miss him.
Farrugia: Every superlative has been exhausted by the Masters when
referring to Tony, so what can be added that will adequately
describe this guy? Captain of the Soccer and the Cricket, winner
of the Form Prize and the proud owner of the AAV)ods Shield for
1964, the crowning glory^ of his Junior School career.
THE ASHBURIAN 103
Firestone: Bruce's chief claim to fame is his running battle with his
buddy, Farrugia, for the top place in the Form. An inveterate
worker, and a "trier" on the sports field, he will be a future leader
of Ashbury in a few short years.
Gow: Duncan minds his own business and keeps out of all feuds. He
appears to be content to work hard and always be third to either
Firestone or Farrugia. Winner of the 1964 Headmaster's Cup, you
can expect to hear some day that Dune has done something worth-
while tor Canada — and mankind.
Howes: Michael "suifers" from being the youngest boy in the class.
Bur at the same time he is the "oldest" in the number of years spent
at Ashbury. He has a reasonable knowledge of the year's work,
and can be expected to do even better as he progresses up the school.
MiRSKY: Where have I heard, "You untidy brute, Mirsky"! Alike
believes, along with some famous English professor, that knowledge
should come first, and tidiness later. His greatest shock this year
was to make the bottom of the "Top Banana Club" after the Easter
Moulds: For sheer tenacity and a willingness to work, Don must be
considered one of the most reliable members of the Form. As well
as a hard worker in class, he is the inspired Captain of the Under 14
Soccer, and an excellent cricketer.
Nelms: John uses his charm to extricate himself from trouble, with
varying degrees of success. He claims that he tries, and this year
I am sure that his fellow^ class members would agree. Unfortunately
he will not be here next vear, and we all wish him well at Fisher.
Sharp: At the end of the year no boy was happier than Chris when he
received his results and found he had passed. He had been frantic
with worr\^ during the first week of June, which is sad because he
really does want to do w^ell, providing, of course, that it does not
include too much reading.
Tyas: One wonders what the antonym for teacher's pet might be. Jamie,
considered a very nice guy bv his class mates, is accused of being the
laziest boy in the Junior School by "certain masters unnamed".
Would you rather work than gaze out the window at the traffic on
Maple Lane? \\\)rk is for the birds.
Weld: If ever a boy held the admiration of a whole class, that boy must
surely be Hugh. Always willing to "have a go", he never shirks
his turn at any obligation either in the classroom or on the sports
field. We were all sorry to hear that he is going to High School
next year, for his cheerful grin and sound common sense will both
be missed when school reopens. A\'as it coincidence that he sat
at Mr. Spencer's table for lunch each day?
Armitage, Russell — This is his second year at Ashbury. His favourite
subjects are science and French. He hkes all kinds of sports and
was on many teams. His favourite master is Mr. Spencer.

Yonkers, N.Y., U.S.A. I am a yearly boarder at Ashbury. It is
my first year here and I am accompanied by my three brothers here.

first year at Ashbury. I've got the nick name of Cars. My

very much. He is very good in hockey, but is a good "all rounder".
His nick name is Skipper.
Ennis-Smith, Rod — He is a very good athlete, but he has had a little bit
of trouble with some good competition. He has many good sub-
jects and enjoys school.
TH E AS H B U Rl AN ws
Harsh, Bill — He is the second r;illesr l)()\- in the Junior School, bur this
however doesn't seem to atlect his great working ;ibilitv. This year
will be his hist year, I'm afraid, but ma\ be he'll change his mind.
LoFTUS, Philip — My name is Loftus and I'm a Limey (not quite as
atomic as Michelson would wish \<)u to believe). I have been
attending Ashbury for six years and this is m\ last year in the |unior
School. My favourite sports are soccer and cricket, and favourite
subject is history.

loves it. He likes sports and his best subjects are all of them. He
is a very nice guy.
A'iGDER, David — He likes soccer and baseball. His favourite subjects
are arithmetic and geography. He came to Ashbur\' in Grade 7.
He likes everybody in his room. He studies very hard.
Barker, Jeremy — Ski jumping is it Jerry! and cricketl ^ ou're one of
the types that wants to break his leg. Science he enjoys, and the
curly blonde boy says that he wants to be a family M.D. 1 think
you had better work harder. Good luck!
Barnes, Charles — A dashing playful little fellow at tw^elve years of age,
he is doingr very well for himself. Subjects of all kinds don't exact-
ly agree with him, but he is mighty keen with a cricket bat. I le
likes soccer. A little more practice and he'll make it. Four years
he has been at Ashbur\-, but he hasn't made his mind up \\hat he
wants to be. 1 wish \ ou good luck.
CoPELAXD, Stephex — Hc sccms to get along with the boys the five
years he's at Ashbury. His hobbies are girls and art. He seems
better in Latin, French and Science than in any other subjects.
Football, hocke\- and baseball are his favourite games. He wants to
follow in his father's footsteps to be a contractor. He had better
sharpen up on his arithmetic.
Day, Nicky — He has been here for three years and he seems sure of him-
self. Being a veterinarian is not an easy job but he'll probably be a
good one. Spelling and geography are his subjects. He likes foot-
ball and swimming. Sure hope he doesn't go to the dogs!
Deutsch, Andy — Where is the cleverness in him besides English, history
and science? It's in baseball, cricket and soccer where he was
assistant captain. He has a lot of friends. In the four years attend-
ing Ashbury he's been vi'ondering how good a flyer he is going^ to be.
He has certainly done well as our Form Monitor. 5sice work,
DoLLiN, David — He has attended Ashbury four years and he likes his-
tory, arithmetic and science, which he finds interesting. He is
active in soccer and cricket, making both teams. Fine work as an
assistant monitor. He hopes to be a scientist.
Ellis, Mark — History and English are his main subjects in the five years
he has been here. He likes cricket and hunting as his sports.
Also fishing. He hopes to be a lawyer.
EsPAiLLAT, Rafael— Three years the httle Spanish Brain has been
attending Ashbury. The phrase "brain" is meant because he is a
ten year old Spanish boy and already in Grade 7. History and
algebra are his favourite subjects. He enjoys cricket and baseball,
and during the later years of his life he hopes to be an engineer.
Hearne, Victor— The old rimer lias been at Ashbiir\' for seven years,
and English, geography and arithmetic are his subjects. Look at
that trout as he reels it in, carr\ing on his favourite sport, fishinij.
Playing on a soccer team he must be pleased. He intends to be a

wants to be.

algebra and football. He's a tall lad and hopes to be an engineer.

A GIFT FOR MOTHER
School WHS over for Friday at four o'clock. I felt m\' fifteen cents
hopping up and down as I myself was jumping up and dow n. Fhen 1
found my friend in the same mood with fifty cents in his pocket.
The next minute we were flying across the tunnel leading to the
Senior School where the Tuck Shop and Dining Room stand. Of course
the Senior School is there, too. Just when I was going to step into the
Tuck Shop, my friend said how about the Mothers' (Juild Sale in the
Dining Room. Then we both ran up the stairs and into the Dining
There I waited for half an hour. Then 1 bought a flower ashtray.
When 1 asked the lady how nmch it was, she said that she could bankrupt
me from 25 cents to 15 cents. And so 1 bought it for fifteen cents.
Bega.mudre— Form I
Everyone knows how much spare time we haxe at Ashbury, so
when the homework load is heaviest, I decide to skip it all and use the
spare time doing experiments in my lab in the basement. All over the
walls are cupboards filled with chemicals, and this is much more fascinat-
ing than Latin or Algebra homework. As 1 look at the many glass tubes,
beakers, and stands I wonder what experiment 1 can do this time, at
the same time covering up in case mv parents become interested. Why,
I even forget about the trouble that is waiting for me the next day, and
the telephone calls to my dad from an angry teacher.
I could list some of my experiments, but some grown-up might think
it is dangerous, and that would be the end of my spare-time-fun. It is
a good thing— I say! —to have an all absorbing hobby, and one day I
shall have a First in Grade XIII Chemistry.

Oh, when I was a little boy

But my mother and father it did annoy.

It was silent in the pitch that day. Deathly silent. The crowd
was waiting. For I — Brodie-Brockwell — alias the Slugger was coming
up to bat. I strode proudly into the pitch and took my position at the
wickets. The bowler, trembling with fear, glanced around, then began
his run and bowled. I swung back, and connected. You could hear
the distinct "crack" everywhere. The crowd roared. So did the um-

comments. He read off my name and I jumped up and down.

A. Farrugta— Trans A
On my last birthday I was given a tent. This pleased me and I was
determined to sleep out. I begged and begged and finally stained mv
mother's permission. 1 had boasted of mv^ courage but I must confess
my courage waned thin as the thunder clapped and the lightening bolted
and the thought of countless horror movies ran throucjh mv mind, but I
could not give up now so I decided to see it throuoh.
After about an hour I fell into a troubled slumber only to awaken
from it several hours later. I could not get back to sleep so I sat up and
thought pleasant thoughts.
It was a pale and tired me who finally knocked at the front door
about seven in the morning.
.My little brother crowed but as he had not wanted to come out it
didn't bother me. I made a resolution that next time I would listen to
the weather forecast.
.MURDER AT .MIDNIGHT
"It's him or me now, John, there's nothing else to do." Arnold
Fletcher's voice trembled with nen^ousness as he spoke into the tele-
phone. He looked uneasily over his shoulder, but he was alone in the
little crrocery shop. The "Open" sign on the door was facing inwards.
Through the window he could see the fog surrounding the street light
in a yellow cloud.
"I can't let it g;o on any longer, you know how much he's taken from
us these last few weeks and his kind will never leave you alone until
they've got almost everv^thing. He'll be here tonight for more, but I'll
stop him this time."
"It's no good John" he sighed, "my mind is made up. Even if I did
report it to the police, think of the risk if it leaked out. It would put us
out of business. I'll be careful, don't worry."
He hung up slowly and put his white apron behind the counter.
